Billy began his professional music career at the age of fifteen playing back-up guitar for then Polydor recording artist Ruby Winters.  He played with various bands throughout high school, while also writing and recording and after graduation he joined a regional touring act.  After years of touring and session work, Billy got his big break when he was asked to play guitar for the Backstreet Boys on their 1997, 1998 and 1999 national and international tours.  That led to touring with other major pop acts, such as Brittany Spears and O-Town.  Through these relationships he performed on many national television shows and music videos. During this time Billy continued to hone his writing and recording skills, and worked as a writer and producer on albums for acts such as Backstreet Boys, O-Town, Aaron Carter, Leslie Carter, Turbo B, Menudo, Sister Hazel, Edwin McCain and Don Henley He has received numerous Gold and Platinum album awards for these projects. He received a BMI Award and a Juno Nomination.
